Like so many Hollywood films, this begins wonderfully and then the life slowly leaks out. Begins well because all is fresh, no mistakes have been made, brisk technique is in command; but when it has to grow up, it sogs. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The faces of Gable, Clift and Monroe together in closeup have a Mount Rushmore look to them. Full Review

...That this was the last film of both Monroe and Gable adds an elegiac patina...

Talent, controversy and accident have combined to make The Misfits an unusually interesting film if not an outstandingly good one. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- John Huston's latter-day western exerts a doomy, morbid fascination that goes beyond what we see on the screen. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- A glorious, brave, imperfect portrait of flawed people yearning for freedom and respect, but pulled by the primal urges of love, lust and pride to trap themselves in cages of their own crafting. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- Such a fantastic acting showcase that it's easy to lose sight of the fact that a top-shelf talent like John Huston directed. Full Review

Product Description:

Sophisticated, but emotionally crippled Roslyn (Marilyn Monroe, giving what many believe to be her strongest performance) has come to Nevada to gain a quick and easy divorce. When her landlady introduces her to aging, broken cowboy Gay Langland (Clark Gable), she finally finds herself with a worthy partner. Meanwhile, Gay and his fellow horsemen Guido and Perce (Eli Wallach and Montgomery Clift) scheme to capture a herd of wild horses. Though megawatt star power and a brilliant script by Arthur Miller failed to turn THE MISFITS into box office success (probably due a legendarily troubled shoot), time and critical reputation treated it very kindly. It was the final film for icons Gable and Monroe.

Plot Synopsis:

A down-on-her-luck, divorced woman meets and falls for a disenchanted outcast cowboy who earns his living by capturing wild mustangs. When she witnesses this cruel spectacle, she recoils in horror -- then teams up with a jaded rodeo performer in an attempt to free the horses.
